    this command isn't that important, since i already found the device in the ACPI tables.

    2. No Mac OS anymore. Seriously, sometimes I managed to screw up my Ubuntu installation, and was...

    Hi,

    with respect to display backlight, it looks like it's the same device as on older models. however we need to figure out the exact range it supports (same procedure as every time), which works...

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Will the MacBook Pro Early 2011 work better with Ubuntu than the Air Late 2010?

    Please also note, that this new machine uses Intel's new processor generation, that also requires a new chipset. Hence, it might happen, that the maverick kernel doesn't fully support it, similar to...

    Hi,

    thanks for your work. According to a first test, it works fine. However, I'd like to mention some notes:


    When running fullscreen applications (e.g., XBMC, World of Goo), that grab...

    Yepp. You'll have to use the mactel version, because the official version doesn't support your machine yet. (It always takes some time until the patches get accepted upstream.) On gentoo you can...

    don't try that. first, the nvidia driver packages are called nvidia-96, nvidia-173, nvidia-current. and as of lucid, there are no restricted modules packages anymore due to usage of DKMS. hence, the...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: brightness control doesn't work. Why does documentation say it does?

    in general, there's no right answer. for the macbook pro 6,2, however, the page you referenced does not seem to suggest the installation of nvidia_bl. hence, you don't have to remove it.

    Hi,

    some years ago, I had a similar problem: my MacBook Pro 4,1 (with rEFIt) refused to recognize the partition table and, hence, only presented a grey screen at bootup. no USB drives, no CD...

    the driver doesn't support iMac models and, hence, doesn't load. in fact, we don't know whether the driver works on this machine at all. i can provide a patched version, if you like to try.

    The module isn't loaded. Besides that, also consider this thread for more information regarding your model and pommed in general.
